Inn, Jan. 31 and Feb. 1.

Doyle, the front man for Great Big Sea, will trade
in his song sheets for recipes as he switches places with Perrin of St. John’s Mallard
Cottage.

On Jan. 31, Doyle will head up the kitchen showcasing his
recipes for smoked cod pate and chicken wings and musical director Perrin will
make the lounge ring with sommelier Jacob Luksic keeping with the beat while
guiding guests through the creation of cocktails.

On Feb. 1, Doyle, Fogo
Island Inn executive chef Murray McDonald and Perrin will offer guests a
hands-on cooking and tasting class. That evening, Doyle and Perrin will return
to their traditional roles in a happy hour concert followed by a five-course
tasting menu.

“I am always excited
when gifted people visit us at the Inn. 
I’m really looking forward to a great weekend with our guests and these
two awesome guys as we cook up a storm and raise the roof with music,” said McDonald,
joking, “I just hope Alan doesn't burn down the kitchen!”
